Learn to create your one-of-a-kind fabric with specialty paints. How fun would it be to create an entire piece of art with fabric you created. You will start with a solid white fabric and go crazy with paint, stencils and more. Learn the different mediums to use for exquisite color on fabric. The sky's the limit!
This class is so much fun. I paint a lot of my fabrics that I use in my fiber arts. I will teach you how to create batik looking fabric, tie-dye look and more. You will be using all of my supplies so no need to worry about the purchase of paints. This class is designed to introduce you to high quality textile paints. Starting with white PFD fabric, I will show you how to use oil Shiva sticks, acrylics, rock salt, paint plates, stencils and more.
All students will need to pay $25 directly to the teacher for use of supplies including high quality textile paints, oil Shiva sticks, acrylics, rock salt, paint plates, stencils and more.
